NaNoWriMo (Day 3 of 30) "Strangers in the Dark" (49,468 words left)

Day 3 Of NaNoWriMo and still going pretty strong...not in word count, but in the fact that I am still writing every day. Besides, today was a particularly busy day. I worked, had two meetings, did one of my friend's hair, went shopping, got a call that another friend had a siezure (she's doing great though), ran home, helped take care of friend's dogs while her and her family were at the hospital, saw them when they came home, all safe, went to other friend's (hair friend) for dinner, watched a movie, came home, wrote!!! Busy, busy, busy!!! Anyway, hoping everyone the best, especially in their writing! Here's my continuation...Still in chapter one!

Strangers in the Dark (Continued)

...One week without electricity and the entire city started going crazy. People I knew where banging on the doors of every neighbor, abandoned house, grocery store, gasoline station, and department store, looking for water, food, gas, blankets, lanterns, and anything else someone needed to truly survive in this new urban wilderness. Dad was smart and thought of these kinds of things weeks ago. He was always good in a crisis, knowing when to pack extra socks on vacation, or pick up egg drop soup on his way home from working at the office whenever any of us were sick. This time was no different. He had water, which we used very sparingly now that every faucet in the city had run dry. We also had canned goods and boxed items for food, anything that wouldn’t spoil without a freezer or refrigerator. It seemed we were set for a while, maybe even until the lights came back on. However, that feeling didn’t last very long. It wasn’t but a few more days and the city border started to go up, blocking almost any exit from the city... (186 words)

It's almost midnight so I better post. See you all tomorrow!


  1. Oh its getting scarier. The suspense is building well.

  2. I wrote about 1000 words of junk yesterday. Today, I need to kinda fix it so I can move on. I don't edit as I go but I feel like I need to get off on the right foot and this was clearly not a good base. Glad to see you're coming along well!

  3. Shah...:) Thanks for the next prompt! I'm excited!

    Call Me Cate...Ah, bummer. I feel like that sometimes too though, like nothing is comeing out right. I'm making an oath to myself, not to go back and edit. Not until I am finished. If something needs work, I will make a note of it, and then go back when everything else is at least written down. I know it can still stall you a bit though, really blocking you from moving on so good luck!

  4. Great job! I really like your story, it is very lively.
    Hope you'll have more time to write more in the next couple of days. I am curious I want to read more.

  5. MarieHarmony...Thank you. I am planning on writing every single day, so check back. I am happy that you are enjoying it so far.
